Jul 21 2006 | 5:31pm ET

Award-winning teacher Laurie Hodrick is trading the ivory tower for an office tower. Hodrick has taken leave from Columbia University, where she is a professor of finance and economics at its Graduate School of Business, to head up Deutsche Bank's global head of alternative investment strategies in its global markets research group.

Hodrick is an expert in corporate financial decision making in the capital markets, including optimal security auction mechanisms.

"With exceptional academic credentials and significant relevant experience, Laurie is uniquely placed to lead our efforts in this important emerging area of research," said new boss David Folkerts-Landau, Deutsche Banks's head of global markets research.
